Dancer, Prancer and Vixen
Bitchy Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is proof that the fashion industry is a serious business. Of course, the same biz inspired laughter by introducing Barbie-inspired sweaters and polka-dot parachute pants on this years runways and putting a wedding hat that resembles a Flying Spaghetti Monster on Prince Williams royal cousin.
This blend of seriousness and humor is at the heart of Scorpius Dance Theatres fashion-themed Catwalk at Phoenix Theatres Little Theatre. The show is a remount of last springs successful dance revue, in which troupe members pranced onto a catwalk in local designer couture.
One popular number finds a robot vixen fending off some groping guys, while another is a sensual tango of male couplings. The biggest change to the program comes at the end. Last seasons finale was loved and hated at the same time, so I decided to switch it up, says choreographer and artistic director Lisa Starry. In its place are four new dances, including a male revue set to Beyonces Put a Ring on It and a dark circus-themed number with fashions by Alicia Klovenas.
Thursdays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: May 12. Continues through May 21, 2011
